Gentle Flow


This class is taught by:

Jo Clausen

My practice has taught me how to breathe, has allowed me to tune in and appreciate myself, it builds my confidence, heals and strengthens my body, and continually allows my mind a more compassionate, clear, and patient perspective in all aspects of my life. Yoga is an incredible gift. We are so lucky! My wish is to share the benefits of yoga like they have been shared with me, while practicing and growing together in this wonderful community. I was certified to teach through Yoga Works in February of 2015, and look forward to taking more training in the near future. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my practice in my home studio, Bindi. I strive for balance in my classes-so be ready to explore the power of breath in challenging postures, along with wonderful restorative postures and meditation. -Namaste

Susan Rennert

(Co-owner of Bindi Yoga)
My training was done at the Yoga Tree in Freemont. I have my 500 hour Yoga Alliance Certification. Besides yoga being a big part of my life, I also share my life with my husband Jack and 4 dogs. My daughter Michelle (also co-owner) and I started Bindi Yoga together February 2011.
A yoga practice is different for everyone, you do not need to be flexible, have great balance, or have a dancers body. Anyone can do some form of yoga. I have been humbled in my own practice and reminded that just because I teach yoga doesn't mean that I can do a picture perfect pose. We all have injuries or other challenges that affect our yoga practice. I give myself a daily reminder that yoga is a lifetime practice.
Yoga invites us to explore connections with the relationship we have within ourselves. When we build on the awareness of body and breath, thoughts and emotions, we can start to really understand who we truly are. My classes are a good mix for both the experienced yogi as well as the beginner yogi. By creating a space for each yogi to feel free to move into a more challenging pose or to take it down a notch allows you to be more in control over your practice. My job is to guide you and help you achieve your goals. At anytime you feel you need additional help or guidance regarding your yoga practice, please do not hesitate to as anyone of us. We love hearing from our students! -Namaste Susan

Kim Hinzmann

I am the mother of four amazing and busy children, an over energetic border collie/beagle child and three frisky feline kiddos as well. Some days I feel like I run a zoo! I NEED yoga in my own life and I know everyone can benefit from a yoga practice in theirs! I know in my heart and soul that yoga really IS for EVERY body! Fourteen years ago I had two Doctors tell me I needed spinal surgery, discs needed to be fused which would cause a permanent loss of mobility. Thankfully I was convinced by a third Doctor and my sister to try yoga... I was immediately hooked! I never felt better, not only in my back but in my entire body and self esteem. I had more energy, was stronger than ever and lost weight quickly! I have a drive, a passion, to share this experience with everyone I can. I love to see the growth in my students, physically as well as every other aspect. I bring the love of yoga basics to students who have never had the pleasure of trying yoga as well as to intermediate and advanced students, helping with alignment and up-leveling. Always encouraging growth. I am trained in Vinyasa, Yin and Hatha style yoga. I am and will continue to be a student myself. I look forward to sharing my passion with you soon!
 

Ali Eden

Ali took her first yoga class in 1995 when she was pregnant with her son. Since then, her practice has changed, challenged, and nurtured her - much in the same way parenthood has. For Ali, yoga has been a solid friend to journey with. The spiritual, physical, and mindful benefits continue to be immeasurable, and she is grateful have the opportunity to teach yoga so that others may also benefit.
Ali is a 2012 graduate of Twist Yoga’s Teacher Training. She is a lover of learning and takes yoga classes wherever she happens to be in the world and considers that to be a huge part of all travel experiences. She has a passion for restorative yoga and slow-flow practices. Ali has been teaching high school for 20 years where she continues to bring mindfulness practices to her students. Through teaching both yoga and high school, she sincerely hopes to provide her students with tools to use to become calmer, stronger, more confident, and more content.
New to Bindi! This is a great class for beginners to get their feet wet in a fluid moving class without the vigorous activity in a power vinyasa class. Learn proper technique, alignment and terminology of postures (asanas), while opening tight spaces in the body and toning the body in a very gentle way. Even seasoned yoga practitioners enjoy this class because it can fine tune their physical and mental practice on the mat.
 
Modern life is fast enough—your yoga doesn’t have to be. Deliberately mindful, measured movement can balance that frenzied energy. Go ahead and surrender to our soft, soothing, spirit-lifting sequences. Quiet your mind, relieve aches and soothe your soul in tranquil sessions that are designed to leave you refreshed. Classes are held in our non-heated room, but bring layers of clothing for your own comfort. Mats, bolsters, blankets, and other props are provided, or feel free to bring your own. All levels of yoga practitioners are welcome!
